We’re pretty much refusing to believe Star magazine’s report that Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale’s marriage is on the rocks — partly because our hearts can’t take any more celebrity divorces, partly because we haven’t seen any other corroboration. GossipCop says a source close to the couple calls the rumor completely false. But after Demi and Ashton, Katy and Russell, Heidi and Seal — need we go on? — we’re just a little gun-shy. So, don your rose-colored glasses with us and review the timeline of this match made in ’90s rocker heaven.
1995: Gwen and Gavin meet when No Doubt and Bush tour together (with the Goo Goo Dolls! Oh, the ’90s). Gavin described their first date to Details: “I threw a party in New Orleans just as an excuse to hang out with her. We drank a bunch of hurricanes and went around the French Quarter. We had our first kiss that night, just walking around, being careful to step over the puddles of pee. The next day we had that sort of cute, embarrassed, sober meet-up.”
2002: Gavin and Gwen get married.
2004: A DNA test reveals that Gavin is the father of then-14-year-old model Daisy Lowe, whose mother is former Powder singer Pearl Lowe.
2006: Kingston James McGregor Rossdale is born.
2008: Zuma Nesta Rock Rossdale is born.
2009: Cross-dressing singer Marilyn confirms that he and Gavin dated when Gavin was 17.
2010: Courtney Love tells Howard Stern she slept with Gavin while he was dating Gwen. Meanwhile, rumors abound that Gwen is pregnant with a third child and is hoping for a girl. Nothing comes of this.
2011: Our obsession with Kingston and Zuma reaches new heights, as we see this picture of their playdate with the Pitt-Jolie kids.
